owning a home or looking after their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. we're not going to do that. >> dear me. diwe mention ohio voting starts in sidays? i'm delht to be joined now by former ohioer t strickland with us from columbus. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> governor, there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make roads in your fair state, but why do you think he's doing so badly? is it because he had done nothing save the a industry? is it because he says he doesn't care about half the population of the country? or is it because nobody understands what he stands for outside of tax cuts? >> all of the above, martin. beginning when we found out he had a swiss bank account, investments in th caymen islands -- >> switzer land. >> outsourcer of jobs. he went on and on and on. his wife has two cadillacs, an elevator for his cars in his home. and then he says on videotape that he'tingfff the american people, just basically talking in the most disdainful way about good, hard working americans. veterans, poor people who are working their hearts out

republican party has moved far from the right and it would have taxed any politician to get back to the center, but he was his own worst enemy during the primaries. he didn't have to go to the right of newt gingrich and rick perry on immigration to win that nomination. if he had come out and, you know, said that he was for the dream act sort of the way gingrich did, he still would have gone on to win the nomination and now he would be in a position -- >> you think so? >> -- to compete for latino votes, but he's not a skillful enough politician to anticipate that, and all he can do is say whatever is necessary to get him through the day. this comes out of his experience in the business community where, you know, all he did when he went in and closed these deals is say whatever was necessary to close the deal no matter whether it was true or not and then he'd negotiate about it later, you know, after he took over the company. so this is the world he comes out of, and it just does not equip him for politics. here is the other thing that i think has been missed in the last couple days is th

taxes should be raisednd agasthe micar advantage cuts. this is consistent for him since the beginning of the campaign. the problem is his rhetoric sounds like he objects to obama care on a much broader -- >> but, michael, the central issue is the iividl mandate. >> tt's right. >>nds ngh ways on that, isn't he? >> well, sure. he's saying i like the individual mandate on the state level and i don't like it on the federal level. >> right. >> don't forget, this underlying philosophy that earlier this week he said we ve care for the uninsured, tcan g to the emergency rooms. a few years ago he said we can't have freeloaders going to the emergency room. there is, michael, i think some slicing and dicing he's trying to do. don'tforget, two days ago h admits that the president actually has not raised taxes on the mide class. then yesrd he says to people attacking the president, and he says, middle class people, i'm going do all these things, but don't expect a big tax break. the guy has got to stick to one story. >> good luck with that, karen. dana, i know you weret mr. romney's event at the amer

he thisai that he pays a lower tax rate than somebody who is making $50,000 a year and he said yes. i think it's fair, and i also think that's the way you get economic growth. i have just got a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think, barbara, you grow an economy from the meouot t down. >> professor reich, is the 15% rate, is it that that matters, or is it the view that romney would never betray his own class? >> it's interesting, martin. we've had presidents before who ost,nkwealthy, teddy roosevelt, john f. kennedy, but they have been traitors to their class, at least that's how the rich have felt. they have represented the poor, advanced labor unions, advanced social security, and all sorts of middle class and working cls goals. tt rney hesty thnde pde who is a spokesman, a sponsor, a booster of the rich, and that, i think, is what americans are beginning to see more and more. the president is exactly right. you can't build an economy from the top down. we have seen over and over again viig t breaks to the rich hoping that everybody else benefits, simply doesn't w

hear a specific from mr. romney on how he plans for a revenue-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of the contrast the president will be going for. i think romney's only defense on that, since i don't think he'll give us specifics, is rhetoric

promise that they're going to reduce taxes by 20%, how does mitt romney deal with that tomorrow? what does he actually say that he has previously refused to say on explaining that? >> well, i think it's fascinating that they're treating mitt romney like he's the president and a lot in the media treat president obama like he's the challenger. what president george w. bush did when he was governor of texas is said i want to reduce taxes across the board and i want to make sure we have a balanced budget. he wasn't very specific during the campaign, and when he became president, he released a series of principles that went to capitol hill that said these are the measures that meet my -- >> here is the problem with that though, ron. people who have assessed his mathematics have deemed them to be completely impossible. michael, this is just in from mitt romney on how he'll pay for his massive 20% across the board tax cut. take a listen. >> everybody is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction and you can use your charitable deduction or your home mortgage deduction or others, health care dedu
